Tottenham midfielder Sandro has signed a new 5-year deal with the club, until 2016.

The Brazilian midfielder signed last summer from partner club Internacional.

He has gone on to make 26 appearances in all competitions, scoring once.

A knee injury suffered with Brazil during the Copa America has hampered his preperations for the new season but is expected back in training later this month.

Juan Foyth names former Manchester United star as his idol while growing up

Juan Foyth celebrates with his Tottenham teammates

Juan Foyth scored the winner in Tottenham’s game against Crystal Palace on Saturday. The youngster has been drafted into the Spurs first-team due to the injuries to Davinson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen.

Despite a lack of Premier League minutes, the Argentine did well against Wolverhampton Wanderers but he gave away a couple of penalties.

The youngster was much better in the game against the Eagles and recently claimed an ex-Premier League defender was his choice when playing with friends.

The 20-year-old was quoted by the Mirror as saying:

“My idol when I was young was Kaka, but playing with friends, I always played centre-back and I’d say, ‘I’m Rio Ferdinand’. But I don’t know why.

“I was young, but I know he was an amazing centre-back. I’d play PlayStation and when I’d play with friends I’d say ‘I’m Rio Ferdinand’, but I don’t remember the games.”

The former Leeds United and Manchester United defender was one of the best during his playing days, and the Englishman won almost everything there is in club football.

Foyth has had a great start to his Premier League career with Tottenham, but the youngster has a long way to go before he can emulate the former defender.

For now, the former Estudiantes player’s stock is on the rise, and playing in the Premier League certainly is a big deal for the 20-year-old.

“Since when I was a kid, my dream was playing in the Premier League, so I’m enjoying it.”

“It is strange that Daniel asked for details like this” – Mauricio Pochettino surprised about his inputs for new stadium

Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that Daniel Levy asked the Argentine about some design elements as our new stadium is being constructed.

Spurs expected to play at the new ground in September, however, the stadium has been hit by many delays and we are unsure when it will be ready for use.

Pochettino has seen Spurs start the Premier League season well and we are five points behind leaders Manchester City after 12 games.

The Argentine was quoted by the Mirror about Levy asking him for some inputs related to the stadium:

“It is strange that Daniel asked for some details like this because he is the architect and he loves this kind of thing.

“But yes, he asked, because we are the professionals and afterwards we are going to be using those different things at the stadium.”

Spurs were recently given clearance to play at Wembley till the end of the current campaign, should the stadium not be ready before the 2019-20 season, as per the Mirror.

We played all our home games at Wembley last season, and the new stadium certainly is taking much longer than expected to be completed.

Mauricio Pochettino lauds Tottenham midfielder’s hard work in recent weeks

Moussa Sissoko

Moussa Sissoko certainly seems to be getting better with each game under his belt this season. The Frenchman has had a tough time since his move from Newcastle in 2016, but Mauricio Pochettino believes the midfielder’s hard work is finally paying off.

Sissoko started in our 1-0 win over Crystal Palace, making it five starts in a row for the 29-year-old.

Pochettino was quoted by the Independent as he lauded the hard work put in by players:

“Sometimes different players need a different amount of time to produce performances in the way that you want.

“But by being honest, professional and always giving your best you can turn the opinion of the people. Quality is so important in football. But quality without effort, being professional and fighting for the team makes it difficult for a player to show that quality.”

The Frenchman has been linked (h/t Independent) with moves away from Tottenham, but now seems to be a regular for Spurs.

Pochettino claimed many players have performed better after being linked with exits. The Tottenham manager praised the midfielder’s tenacity and professionalism.

“But good thing can happen if you are a professional like Moussa and keep pushing and working hard. Sometimes when you feel the pain you keep your head up, keep pushing and keep working hard, that is the only way to get through it.”

Spurs didn’t sign any players in the summer window, and truth be told, it was tough to picture Sissoko receiving many games for the club this season.

However, the Frenchman has certainly put in some quality performances in the previous weeks, and the only thing missing in his game is goals.
